Dead Calm (1989)
A Cry in the Dark (1989)

Rabbit Proof Fence (2002)*
Strictly Ballroom (1992)
Dark City (1998)*
My Brilliant Career (1979)
The Man from Snowy River (1982)*
Gallipoli (1981)*
Crocodile Dundee (1986)

I don't remember ever seeing it. I know it's considered a good movie.

With any luck your daughter will have a fantastic time - I went once - years ago. I really didn't want to come back.

I did though...

I think Mad Max II - complete with the feral child - is a quality film as well.

The third Mad Max film - Beneath the Thunderdome - was a sequel too far.

white: I agree with your Mad Max reviews.

I do hope daughter doesn't stay in Australia. She is having a great time, but I'm so looking foward to seeing her come back home for Christmas. (Selfish mother that I am.)
